Conservative writer Michael Brown, usually seen making his horrible arguments in writing at Charisma, recently posted a video to Facebook after ministering to kangaroos in Australia.

Why? Who the hell knows.

In the video, he insists that he shared Scripture with some kangaroos… and one of them was “slain in the spirit.” Just look at its body.

As Brown says, “See? He’s out,” the kangaroo’s paw can be seen moving. It didn’t just suddenly die because it heard the word “Jesus.” It appears to have done the same thing most of us do when listening to a boring preacher.

What this was supposed to show is anyone’s guess. Whatever the intention, it failed. And even if it’s a joke, it’s indistinguishable from Brown’s typical commentary.

Also — and I can’t believe I need to say this during the coronavirus panic — stop touching kangaroos.
